Wow, this really makes you stop and think about what you are doing and wearing!! Stay Safe!! I too didn't notice any cruisers, but I'm sure they could put a video like this together without any sportbikes and just cruisers!
That was really sobering!!! I saw an accident and the person was not wearing a helmet. His brains were on the ground, that has stayed with me since. I always wear a helmet and now that I have my jacket it's definitely part of my riding attire. Be safe guys and may my God protect you and those around you.
If the video doesn't help drive the message home, here's a couple pics of a guy that wasn't wearing a helmet. We picked him up a couple years ago. I should warn you that the photos are very graphic and should only be viewed with this understanding. That is why I have not direct linked it here.
Dude, I haven't seen anything like that since I got out of the army.. poor bugger... Definetly was a closed casket on that one.. BTW, that is freaking gross and reinforces my desire to wear a full face helmet even in 100+ temps, sweat can be replaced, your face is priceless!!
Agreed with full-face helmets + full gear. After my small accident a month ago, I will never ride without a jacket again, even if it's sweltering hot. I prefer stopping until the temperature goes down, than riding without jacket ever again.
Also, at least ankle-level boots, full face helmet and good gloves (saved me hands and ankles already, will keep preaching their value).
